Having had one in a previous boat, in my opinion a removable bench is a pain in the rear. It is not steady, because it is removable and it has to be stored somewhere when you want to move it. Better off with a nice cooler with feet that don’t slide that can be used as a seat and for storage. It too can be tied down to make it more stable or easily removed. You can walk around the cooler, but you got to step over the seat. A cooler might also come with cup holders or be equipped with some on the sides. Also relatively easy to add traction like SeaDek or a seat to the cooler lid. A Yeti or similar type knock off is nice and heavy too. Or if you got any leftover marine plywood, you can build one like Reid from Bateau did. I believe there is a forum posting on how to do it. His cooler really turned out well.

Your boat is really looking good. Keep up the good work
Thanks.
Got the coolers, one with a grab rail.
Just playing with ideas.

Got to change over to medium speed hardener. The MarinEpoxy slow works great, but the temps are to low for me to use. Don't know about the blushing, the same as slow or bad!



First day, I got my boat!

Ya, move to Sunny Florida..... Warm weather all year round.....

Today in my Neck of the Beach, 47* in the morning, 80*+ in the afternoon....

Got to finish this boat.... It looks so good now, the design of the hull gets everybody's attention from the road!! And it's not painted YET!!!

I like how the MarinEpoxy slow hardener works, maybe next boat start out with Medium speed, to keep building longer....

Hurry up Capt UB, I am catching up to you!!

The weather here has been playing with my build too, the days I can work on it are to cold and the days I don't have the time is warm and sunny.

Hope you can get back to building soon.

Finally warm weather...
Started putting together sole, backing for grab bar and cooler. Blocks for seam on the two parts of the sole.

Wetting out the whole bottom, then using wood flour/MarinEpoxy with slow hardener mix to glue backing and blocks. After an hour or less, coat blocks and backings with epoxy. Next day flip and clean, sand and coat edges and top of sole. Next day, the hard work begains..... Gluing down the the sole, filleting and taping the sole to the hull.

Doing this is after working 10-12 hour days ..... Hopefully the weather will hold out, warm and no rain!!! With the sun setting letter.....

FINALLY! !!!!

Looking good, look good!

For awhile I thought all you wanted to do is post pirate ship pictures!

Good luck on the weather. Just pushed my build back in due to rain drops. Both of them hit me though. :)
